Copy VHD to another storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have an VM whose VHD is stored as storage account SA1 but its premium one. I am unable to change it to standard one so I want to copy this VHD to another storage account with standard one.

    How we can achieve this?

    Can we change the storage account to the existing VM with new one?

  • You can’t change the premium storage account to standard or standard storage account to premium after the storage account is created.

    You can copy the data from one storage account (Premium) to another storage account (standard) by using Microsoft Azure Storage explorer/AzCopy and then create a new VM with standard storage
